Today’s interesting Conservative fact

Today’s interesting Conservative fact

In the book The Conservative Mind: From Burke to Santayana Russell Kirk wrote six tenet of conservatism:

1 A belief in a inspirational harmony based in tradition, God, or natural law;
2. An affection for the "variety and mystery" of human existence;
3. A conviction that society requires orders and classes that emphasize "natural" distinctions;
4. A belief that property and freedom are coupled;
5. A faith in custom, convention, and prescription, and
6. A recognition that innovation must be tied to existing traditions and customs, which entails a respect for the political value of prudence
